Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 17, 2011
THOUGHTS: Actually quite spicy. Way more heat than I was expecting, but it never reached an unpleasant level. But I love hot stuff and this might be too much for some. It would go nice with some sausages. Rather complex. Would be great even without the peppers, but this was incredible and different. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a dark brown that was basically opaque black in the glass with a large, light brown head that mostly diminished, but kept a decent sheet and left excellent lacing. The aroma had moderate to heavy roasted malt, dark chocolate, cocoa, and chocolate milk; maple syrup; and hints of pepper and spice (but that might be my imagination.). The initial flavor was spicy, light to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, slightly bitter and slightly sour; while the finish was moderately sweet, lightly bitter, spicy, and lightly sour with a long duration, especially on the spices. There was chocolate, coffee, roasted malt, chocolate syrup, spicy peppers, dark chocolate, cocoa, slight burnt malt, a little dark fruit, sausage spices, caramel and sour coffee. The medium to full body was leaning toward full. It was silky and then a bit dry with soft yet tingly carbonation that intensified when the spice started to effect the tongue. It also had a dry and spicy finish.

Bottle. Pours in black body with really high brown creamy head, wonderful. Aroma has coffee notes, light smoky. Taste has high toffee sweetness, cold coffee after taste, smokiness all over the palate. The lacing is just amazing. I’m not sure if the roastiness comes from the chipotles or the malt, but is just really balanced. The after taste finishes with full toffee, caramel. I don’t get any chilli sensation from it, just a really good and balanced stout. Body is full, high carbonation.

D’un noir extrême, aux notes chocolatées et piquantes, mousse couleur cacao, elle est épaisse et très aromatique dans l’ensemble. Soyeuse et adorablement corsée, elle émet les saveurs attendues de chocolat et de café, mais le mélange est admirablement bien équilibré, de main experte de toute évidence, à défaut de détecter à fond le chipotle. En dehors de ce détail, c’est un stout qui frôle la perfection. Mikkeller frappe encore.

gEUS (1471) - Linden, BELGIUM - MAR 26, 2013
330 ml bottle - pours coffee brown with no head. Aroma of motor oil, liquorice, Dutch drop. Medium body with an immediate attack of mouth and throat due to the peppers. It’s too much and not gentle at all... Poured it, pity.

kevinsenn (1466) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 26, 2014
Bottle from LCBO. Figs and dark fruit dominate the aroma. Super dark black. Taste of dark fruit, roasted grains, chocolate, and light smoke. Well balanced with a burn at the back of your throat. Thick full body. Quite good.

excellent appearance of deep dark colour and 2 inches of dense, dark brown head; aroma of dark chocolate, coffee, hints of vanilla and some smoke; taste of roasted coffee, herbal notes, some chocolate and alcohol; spicy chilli aftertaste - really good porter

Kita (1464) - Koper, SLOVENIA - SEP 5, 2014
Bottle, 0.33l, shared with Hoppiness crew. Murky dark brown color with medium creamy light brown head and nice lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate, dried fruits with some peppery hints. Taste starts with moderate sweet and rich roasted malt, follows by chocolate note and fruity acidity. When beer gets warmer chipotle chili peppers break loose and create warming and tingling spicy mouthfeel, while spiciness is still present in medium bitter aftertaste. Full body, syrupy texture and soft carbonation in palate. Above excellent...

dionysus (1454) - Arizona, USA - SEP 10, 2010
Pour thanks to daknole! Deep brown/black with an intense beige head. Mikkeller makes such attractive beers. Aroma is heavy with dark chocolate, espresso, and a nice underlying spice. Flavor shows the same with additional roast malt, light smoke, and the chipotle spice definately makes itself known. Overall body is full, viscous, and finishes with a dry bitterness and spicy heat. Mmmm.

lamas (1443) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 25, 2011
750mL "Chipotle Porter" bottle. A jet-black pour with a thick & creamy mocha head that leaves rings of lacing behind. A rich aroma that features lots of smoke, chili peppers, BBQ, cocoa powder, caramel, dark chocolate, vanilla, and some grapefruity hoppiness in the background. Medium to full-bodied and silky smooth on the way down. The taste is moderately sweet upfront with some chocolate, cocoa, and caramel. A fairly dry finish that lingers with a bit of grapefruitiness. Wow! A really authentic BIG chili pepper burn in the back of the throat that hangs around forever. The chipotle peppers actually overshadow the ample hoppiness. Some smokiness (BBQ and charcoal) is present throughout. Interesting and unique. I’ve had other beers brewed with chili peppers, but none have imparted the essence on this level. Another winner from Mikkeller.

Bottle shared by ttroha. Pours a deep dark opaque black with a layer of toffee head. Aroma of booze and coffee. Taste of roasted malts and booziness.
